Despite Arab League confirming opposition rebels are committing violence, Guardian blames Assad for terror attack

Desperate to sell another “humanitarian” invasion, the leftist media in the United Kingdom has resorted to inventing conspiracy theories about events in Syria as part of a campaign to depict President Bashar Assad’s government as genocidal, while completely failing to acknowledge that the country is in a state of civil war.
While the likes of the Guardian and other establishment leftist newspapers in Britain routinely savage anyone who dares to commit the thought crime of questioning the official story behind the 9/11 attacks or the London bombings, apparently it’s perfectly reasonable to continually imply that the wave of bombings and attacks targeting President Bashar Assad’s forces are false flags committed by the regime itself.
The UK Guardian, which has completely prostrated itself as a 24-hour rolling mouthpiece for opposition fighters it habitually describes as “activists,” is at it again today, reacting to news that explosions have killed 17 people in an attack carried out by opposition rebels which targeted Syrian military and security buildings in the northern city of Aleppo, by insinuating the Syrian government bombed its own facility.
They did the same thing when were 30 people killed by opposition rebels following two terrorist attacks in Damascus back in December.
The newspaper’s live coverage of events is little more than a platform for dubious ‘tweets’ sent out by anyone with a Twitter account claiming to be a Syrian activist, almost all of which claim with no evidence that Assad is killing his own forces to blame it on the opposition.
“Blow up people then broadcast the gory aftermath on morning TV. What an utterly disgusting regime,” reads one tweet featured by the Guardian.
“Two explosions rock Aleppo, obviously another Regime charade on the bodies of innocent civilians and some of its cronies,” writes another.
These baseless accusations could be coming from anywhere, whether they be from real Syrian “activists” or from within the halls of Britain’s Foreign Office. The Guardian simply regurgitates them alongside an editorial tone that affords the claims total credence, ignoring the independent observers from the Arab League who confirmed in their report thatopposition fighters were using indiscriminate violence against government forces.
The plausibility of terrorists targeting the Syrian regime is perfectly viable given the fact that hundreds of Libyan rebels, commanded by Abdulhakim Belhadj, a committed jihadist who fought with the Taliban against U.S. troops in Afghanistan, were airlifted into Syria last November to aid the opposition in carrying out attacks against government forces.
British Special Forces are now also on the ground advising rebels. Why would Special Forces who are trained to kill be advising “activists,” as the Guardian describes them?
The Guardian was even called out by one of its own readers, who pointed out that the fighting is actually a two-sided affair, rendering claims that Assad is engaging in “genocide” totally inaccurate.
